76 Trombones and Maisy, too!

Maisy’s Band: A Pull-the-Tab and Pop-up Book ($17.99, Candlewick Press, ages 3 and up) by Lucy Cousins, is reviewed by Rita Zobayan.

Strike up the band! Maisy and her friends are putting on a show, and we’re invited to attend. Throughout the 14 pages we assist Maisy and company in getting ready for their performance. Pull the tab and Plinkety-plonk! Tallulah plays the pink piano. Move the tab up and down, and Root-a-toot! Cyril plays on the trumpet. The penguins hum a tune. The last page features a 3D pull-out stage where all five band members perform. Illustrated in Lucy Cousins’ distinct style, this is a bright and engaging hands-on read for youngsters.

Fun Fact: Did you know that there are over 29 million Maisy books in print worldwide?
